Outdoor dining is one of the first options available to hungry Ontarians as the province reopens from months of lockdown. Kingston’s west end has a fabulous collection of patios ready to serve you.
Patio dining is an amazing way to enjoy the summer months, support local restaurants, and start getting back to a feeling of normalcy. Here, these west-end restaurants owners share their excitement at being able to open their patios and get back to serving diners in-person.
Check out these local options, enjoy some sunshine and fantastic food, and remember: It’s been months since any of us were able to enjoy in-person dining, whether as the diners or the incredible teams that serve them. Stay kind, be patient, and keep safe while you enjoy a taste of what Kingston has to offer!

While you’re here, don’t forget to sample our whiskey selection – we have over 100 bottles, and many great local beer and cocktail options, as well!
